on election day 2005, the president's advisers last week opted to rearrange yesterday's return, to include a stop in the virginia capital in the hope of helping kilgore pull out a victory. it would offer a well-timed vindication of bush's clout. if kilgore wins, the president's political heart keeps beating. >> ladies and gentlemen, theth president of the united states, george w. bush. >> i appreciate you coming out here to the airport. we were just flying in from latin america. when you find a man who's got this kind of character, it makes sense to stop short of the destination and come in and say to the people in this state, put him in office and he'll be proud of the job he'll do for you. >> but in the end, kilgore was trounced. >> this showed that the president's policies in red states are drawing extreme concern. >> republicans eyeing next year's midterm elections are nervous. unlike 2002, when the president was a top draw for congressional candidates, now mr. bush's troubles have left republicans looking for distance. >> reporter: and republicans had reason to be nervous. in the next
. that could tell us which way the country is headed now. for nearly 40 years covering the last nine elections, the party occupying the white house has lost the following race. this shows that streak may be about to end. terry mcauliffe leads ken cuccinelli by 12 points. his largest margin in the poll yet. and when mcauliffe supporters asked what motivates their vote, as i said, nearly two-thirds, 64%, say it's the chance to vote against the republican cuccinelli. by just not being the extreme right winger, the democrat gets the bulk of the votes. this matches, by the way, almost the 65% of virginia voters who have now said they have an unfavorable opinion of the republican party nationally suggesting the force driving this election of virginia next tuesday is the negative voter feeling about the republican party nationally. gene, this is stark stuff. i know we live in washington. i know virginia's to our south across the potomac. but this is the canary in the mine that just died for the republican party. >> well, i think it did. if you look at virginia, it's a purple state. it was red, it's b
before the election, mitt romney was in the great state of virginia telling voters he was going to win. >> thanks so much, you guys. virginia is the best. >> virginia is the best. and it's also the state barack obama won. one year later after a gop autopsy and a vow to rebrand, they haven't learned anything. any moment dozens of senate republicans are expected to vote against a gay rights law that would ban discrimination against gay and lesbian employees in the workplace. that's 39 republicans who didn't get the memo. why? because they haven't learned anything. what about women's rights? republican senator lindsey graham is now launching a new fight against a woman's right to choose. calling for a 20-week abortion ban. >> i've been a pro-life member of congress since day one. i'm proud to lead this charge. >> todd akin was once proud to lead this charge. how'd that work out? again, they haven't learned anything. and this extreme ideology is particularly bad. look at virginia. the republican candidate for governor ken cuccinelli is as far right as they come. he thinks same-sex relation
of the race. >> this election will say a lot about virginia's future and about the country's future. >> two states, two races, what virginia and new jersey tell us about the path the parties are taking. plus -- >> i think government is inherently ingltep tchlinept. >> obama care is failing and will fail. >> they need to call a time-out. >> the gop hammering the president and his party over health care. will the calls for roll back make any progress? >> i think we have to go back to the fundamental notion of stop and frisk as a valid police tactic when gun constitutionally. >> and what will this week's election mean for that controversial tactic. >>> we begin on the campaign trail. president obama just wrapping up a speech in virginia in support of mcauliffe. and over in new jersey, chris christie is barn storming the state in these final 48 hours before election day. kelly o'donnell is on the trail with governor christie and he tells her he's less concerned about winning than he is by how much. >> no republican in this state has gotten 50% plus one since george bush. so we're going for 50 p

allies? all that, and our election preview from new jersey, to virginia, to colorado, a look at what's on the ballot this tuesday. >> i am as frustrated and angry as anyone with the flawed launch of healthcare.gov. so let me say directly to americans, you deserve better. i apologize. >> welcome to "the journal editorial report" i'm paul gigot. an apology from health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius who acknowledged before congress this week that the rollout of president obama's affordable care actdebacle. but despite the website woes and growing outrage over millions of dropped policies, president obama says it's full steam ahead. >> yes, this is hard. the health care system is a big system. and it's complicated. and if it was hard doing it just in one state, it's harder to do in all 50 states. we are just going to keep on working at it. we're going to grind it out. >> joining the panel this week, "wall street journal" assistant editorial page editor frams freeman. editorial board member joe rago and senior economics writer. what do we learn from kathleen sebelius' appe
. >> the way we're going to stop obama care, it's going to come from the american people. >> when we elect me president of the united states, we're going to get rid of obama care. >> memories. we're going to get rid of obama care. how'd that work out? just like it was going to be his waterloo. need more proof the anti-obama crusade is hurting the party? look at the great state of virginia. a test case for far right conservatives. ken cuccinelli, the republican candidate for governor, and since the shutdown he's sinking down 11 points in the polls this summer. but today his big response was to call in tea party senator rand paul who voted for the shutdown. see the pattern? their answer to rejection is to go even farther to the right. how's that for a winning strategy? let's put the fire out with more gas. good luck, republicans. joining me now is congressman john yarmouth, democrat from kentucky, and joan walsh from salon.com. thank you both for being on the show. congressman, after romney lost the election, the gop swore it was rebranding. but now we have ted cruz in iowa continuing with this
going around plagiarizing, but he runs a pretty loose operation. it's like if you elected rand paul president, you would want the key job, the key other person in his administration wouldn't be chief of staff or secretary or state or vice president. it'd be the person who prevents him from inedadvertently hiring racists and plagiarizers. >> that day had been lifted verbatim from the wikipedia entry for the movie "gatica." let's listen to that. >> from wikipedia. ethan hawke's character, quote, assumes the identity of jarome morrow who had been injured in a car accident leaving him parolized. hit it, senator. >> he assumes the identity of jerome morrow. a world class swimming tar with the genetic profile said to be second to none. but he's been paralyzed from a car accident. >> this is weird. he's reading wikipedia off the teleprompter. >> remember hit this messenger. when his real enemy is the search engine. >> i think i'm being unfairly targeted by a bunch of hacks and haters. i'm not going to put up with people casting aspersions on my ka rkt. >> they're like drone miss ls. tham c
from the garden state with an exclusive behind the scenes look at election day with governor chris christie. i now turn you over to wolf blitzer in "the situation room." >>> happening now, we have new details on the deadly rampage at the los angeles international airport. police may have been just minutes away from preventing the shooting. should tsa officers now be armed? i will ask california senator dianne feinstein. >>> also, are the 2016 battle lines being drawn? chris christie may be heading for a big win that could boost his white house chances as an influential center. it falls on hillary clinton to launch her own run. >>> and four years after political opposition fueled his plans to try them in new york city, attorney general eric holder says they would be on death row right now. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> right now, we're learning much more about the bloody shooting rampage at los angeles airport that sent panicked passengers fleeing for their lives, left a tsa officer dead and three more victims wounded. now there's a brand new push by the unio
election this year will probably be in virginia one week from today. ken cuccinelli versus terry mcauliffe. even people who have voted republican forever say they are not going to vote for ken cuccinelli. who knows, miracles do happen in politics, but ken cuccinelli appears to need one. e.w. jackson trails by more than ken cuccenlli does. so the governor's race looks like a democratic blowout. that means the most hotly contested election might be the attorney general's race in virginia. in that attorney general race, it's republican state senator mark obenshane who's running against democratic state senator mark herring. and right now, they appear to be very close. the senate democrats lead 49-46. which means the race is pretty close to predict with any confidence. and that has caused republicans to see mark ownening shane obenshane -- now mark obenshane, if he is elected will be famous for that. the last thing he is famous for, though, was what he did in 2009 as a virginia state senator. he introduced a bill that year which said if a woman in virginia has a miscarriage without a do
's an off/off year. it is november. and there are a bunch of elections on tuesday, next week, november 5th, just four days from now. and the nice thing about that in an off/off year if you're a politics dork because we don't have all that many elections happening in a year like this, the number of races that are going on that are interesting and potentially politically important is small enough that it's possible to keep them all in your head at once. you don't even need notes. new jersey has the republicans race on tuesday, chris christie versus barbara buono. even though this week he admitted publicly he will not promise to actually serve out his term as governor. so his closing argument now is effectively, elect me even though i don't totally want the job and i can't say i won't quit half way through. still, though, the governor was up by 33 points in the most recent poll. the one interesting thing to watch in new jersey is if that big margin holds on election day, what are the down ballot consequences be of that in the state? new jersey democrats have an eight-seat majority in the sena
their insurance. >> go to new jersey. >> take us to jersey. >> a lot of elections. election day tomorrow across the country in new jersey where voters head to the polls, governor chris christie will win reelection. the latest quinnipiac poll has him up over two to one over barba barbara buono. christie and his supporters hope to show the republican party how to win an election. we caught up with governor cristy on the campaign trail over the weekend and asked him what will likely be his victory speech on tuesday. >> sounds like you're planning for a message beyond new jersey. is that a fair assessment? >> i'm not planning for it. i think it's inevitable. people look at elections and they try to discern about what they mean at that moment and what they mean for the future. i think that what people will see is so unusual for what our party has created in the last couple of years that invariably people will draw from us. >> is the margin necessary to lay a future for your career? >> i don't think so. barack obama won the state by 17 points a year ago. the fact that you're talking to a republican a
was controlled by the student council. i had been elected to the student council, and the paper was becoming unreadable. it was just -- it looked like it came out of the soviet union. you just couldn't read it. so we engineered a coup to fire the editor and realized we have to find an editor. so they looked around and decided it's going to be me. so i said, wait. i've never worked on a paper. they said oh, it's a detail. >> a poly sci and economics major, he loved writing and thinking about all things political. he applied to medical school to please his family and got accepted to harvard and got into oxford, as well. to study political theory. would krauthammer choose a life of sirens or a life of letters? the brilliant graduate had enviable options but didn't figure out what matters most to him, so he split the difference. he put off harvard and enrolled at oxford and while studying history's great political philosophers he met a fellow student from australia, robin trethaway. attractive and brilliant, too. a clerk to the chief justy of her home state's supreme court. but so much would cha
the election that one of the campaign slogans for president obama was bin laden is dead and al qaeda is on the run. if you have all these requests for more security, could it be that this was all about an election? >> sure it was. it was all about an election. remember, when did it happen? it happened just a month before the election. once the administration had determined that ben lin laden w dead and al qaeda was on the run, they were not going to acknowledge even in their own heads that al qaeda still presented a threat. it wasn't just the black flags of al qaeda flying. it was the fact that there was a defense department report, a report from the defense department saying al qaeda is setting up a cell in benghazi. watch out. the repeated requests from the people in the embassy. we need more security. it fell on deaf and blind ears. >> so if it was about the election, now we're post-election. >> right. >> so why would the administration continue to allow al qaeda to become stronger in egypt, syria, iraq, afghanistan? i mean, it's one thing to be blinded before an election. >> righ
in the open. the federal elections commission would have records of how much money super pacs and corporations spend on political campaigns. the big-money corporate interests, ooh, we don't want anything to do with this. hell no. democrats support the bill. they're in support of the bill. as a way to bring transparency to the political funding for republicans, this is all about keeping citizens united alive, and, of course, the money in the dark, in the closet, nobody knows where it's dom p coming from and we'll trash anybody we want. they want to keep the unlimited funds going to attack obama care. and wants them, of course, hidden out of the public eye. cruz is blocking the fcc chairman. this is all about republicans controlling the airwaves in the message. and senator cruz wants tom wheeler to give guarantees that nothing is going to change. and he is a senator with a power that will block this guy, and, of course, we're going to go into 2014 without the fcc, no deals are going to get approved. ironically, it's going hurt a lot of right wing companies, but, of course, ted cruz doesn't care.
iraq to pass an election law so people can discuss the differences politically instead of resorting to violence. he met with iraqi prime minister al maliki today add the white house and talked about the challenges ahead. >> unfortunately, al qaeda has still been active and has grown more active recently. so we have a lot of discussion about how we can work together to push back against that terrorist organization that operates not only in iraq but also poses a threat to the entire region and to the united states. >> still ahead, democrats jumping ship from obama care. >>> first, behind the scenes intrigue about hillary clinton and the 2012 campaign. it's what you love about her. but your erectile dysfunction - that could be a question of blood flow. cialis tadalafil for daily use helps you be ready anytime the moment's right. you can be more confident in your ability to be ready. and the same cialis is the only daily ed tablet approved to treat ed and symptoms obph, like needing to go frequently or urgently. tell your doctor about all your medical conditions and medications, and ask
are set to shape up the political word. new details from "double down." the details from the 2012 election are leaking to the press. remember the rumors the obama administration was thinking of booting vice president biden off the ticket for hillary clinton. >> that's crazy news chatter. >> joe, you heard from insiders about this. everybody poo-pooed you. >> said it early on. people were talking about it in '11. i heard from insiders. we talked about it on this show. everybody laughed. >> well, it turns out, when you say it, yeah. it turns out -- it turns out, oba obama's chief of staff at the time, was actively pushing the idea. his quote, i was vocal about looking into a bunch of things. this was one of them. you have to remember, at that point, the president was in awful shape. so, we were like holy christ, what do we do. fortunately for vice president biden, research suggested the move wasn't going to help the president's chances. i wonder why? >> hillary clinton's approval rating is down to 46% right now, i saw. hillary clinton -- >> this is interesting. >> i have great admiration for
employer. now that employer mandate was delayed for one year, so this time next year, right best election, that is when these possible cancellation notices, 93 million of them, will be going out. >> that 93 million is more than even the non-partisan cbo had predicted a year-and-a-half ago. i looked it up today. march 15th, 2012, the cbo and together with the joint committee on taxation, they issued a report. they said up to 30 million americans are going to lose their employer sponsored coverage because of obamacare. that didn't even include what, 15 or 20 million in the individual marketplace. and millions of those are now getting their cancellation notices. >> that's right. we should make the distinction between the millions of people who are now getting cancellation notices because they buy their insurance individually. that is the private, individual market. those letters are going out now. this time next year, a whole new raft of letters go out to those people who get their health insurance from their employer. those plans will be canceled. those people will be shifted into a policy
at elections next year. they are concerned about it. they are concerned about the success of this program depends on how many people, young people who are not in ill health enrolls. to the extent this website are masking other issues like sticker shock, to some extent the administration should be happy that people are focusing on the website. >> isn't that the story, we don't know the markets may adjust six months from now. but that really is a bigger challenge than a website launch, right? >> i think people feel they are out of pocket for this new reform that was promoted to them they will be unhappy and angry. whether the benefits that ordinary folks feel in terms of having protection, being able to change jobs without worrying so much, whether those out weigh sticker shock problems we'll have to say. you worry sometimes that the country wasn't ready politically or technologically for the breadth of what the administration tried to do. >> coming up on "morning joe," former vice president dick cheney will be here on the set plus politico strategist david axelrod, senator tom coburn and d
congress man elected and eisenhower was so right what he said watch out for the military industrial complex. you have to put a leash on it and we never did and this is part of it. >> has america become a much more fearful country in front of all this driven not just by grief as you say but also by a paranoia, by a fear? >> i think so. >> why? >> we don't care to learn about other country. there is an idea about american exceptionalism. i forget the statistic but a startling number of americans who said they had no desire to ever visit another country. >> right. >> you know, some people can't go because they can't afford it and a lot of people are like nope, got everything here. >> 75% of americans have no passport. >> right. >> i find that astonishing. >> right, and they don't seem to want one. why would you want to go overseas when branson is here in missouri? that's part of the problem is, you know, it's hard to be empathetic with people if they don't have knowledge. >> and the paralyzing bureaucracy, whether you're buying a car or a house or whatever it may be or coming out with a tv sho
governor romney made them the center piece of his law. president obama despite the fact in the election he was opposed to the mandate recognized it was a system that had worked well in massachusetts with us covering two-thirds of uninsured citizens. he changed his views, adopted the mandate. once he put his name to it, suddenly they disliked it. when governor romney signed this law, on the stage with him was a speaker from the heritage foundation talking about what a victory it is. now it's the devil's work. now it's just ugly partisan politics. >> let me start with this question. among the president's problems are that he again and again said if you have an insurance policy and most people thought they had a good insurance policy thought they could be left alone. they bought that on their own. now they're being told by their insurance companies that those policies aren't going to exist anymore. what do you think was wrong if you didn't think anything was wrong and the way the president said you'd be left alone with no paperwork if you had a good policy. >> chris, the president probably sh

six people per day donate to obama's re-election? i doubt that. >> or if they would have admitted it. when gur governing, it's different. if the president wants an answer to something like how many people enrolled in obama care, that's an answer the president could get. if they wanted to. the number is obviously low. i'd love to imagine the scene of what it would be like to go in on wednesday morning in the oval office for the meeting with the president and have to have to him only six people signed up for obama care. that would have been a very embarrassing moment. >> by the way, if you have six per day in order to get to the 7 million you need, it's 28,417 years. no wonder they're holding back the number. even if the number's 6,000 when they finally release them, it doesn't matter. the system can't -- it will never be where they needed to be in march. they have to, right now, probably should do it sooner rather than later, say, we're going to delay this. delay the individual mandate or delay being penalized for not having insurance. >> one, they're going to have to do one of the tw
's one of the juicy insider details from the election. obama and romney campaign officials dishing dirt and settling scores. >>> the sports lead. one nfl player is out and another suspended for what? late hit? helmet to helmet tackle? nope. allegedly it's for the same type of behavior we usually attribute to mean girls in high school. >>> good afternoon. welcome to "the lead." i'm jack tapper. we begin with the national lead. moments ago, the head of the union representing officers with the transportation security administration issued a statement calling for some of those officers to be armed in the aftermath of friday's shooting at los angeles international airport. the statement reads in part quote, at this time, we feel a larger and more consistent armed presence in screening areas would be a positive step in improving security for both tsos and the flying public. the development of a new class of tsa officers with law enforcement status would be a logical approach to accomplishing this goal, end quote. security at airports across the nation will be reviewed on orders from attorney
and john heilemann. they searched whether the former first lady could boost the president's re-election chances. here is jonathan martin last night on ac 360. >> campaigns don't spend the kind of money on polling and focus groups unless they are seriously exploring something. it was only known by a half dozen of the top obama senior advisers. >> martin says vice president biden didn't eaven know the president's top advisers were considering replacing him. another revelation mitt romney considered chris christie as his vice president candidate before deciding on paul iran. >>> a big i told you so with more americans dropped by their insurance carriers because of obama care. republicans have been quick to point out they predicted this exact scenario back in 2010 even before that when the president was making a lot of promises that so far have not panned out. chief congressional correspondent dana bash has more. >> the gentleman from ohio, mr. boehner. >> reporter: march 2010 then minority leader john boehner came to the floor. he issued this warning. >> look at this bill! ask yourself do
are reportedly extremely angry about this drone strike. the new government elected a few months ago was elected on the large part to end u.s. drone strikes and begin peace negotiations with the taliban. they so the drone strike as undercutting peace efforts. here in afghanistan his death is welcomed by afghan and u.s. officials whoso him as part of the broader problems for the instability in afghanistan. his death will impact the taliban here in afghanistan and in pakistan. but the pakistani taliban named a successor and vowing revenge, harris. >> i am watching out of my eye the los angeles police department and fbi started the news conference. we learned a little more about what went down in the los angeles international airport. they were not putting a lot on the record that might change later. this might be more of a review. but if there is anything knew that comes out. we covered it moments ago, as the store tore breaks with new details we'll bring it to you. >>> the countdown on. the key and centerpiece for millions of americans to get health care on line, healthcare.gov, obama care access
show? maybe because we haven't heard from him since the presidential election and maybe because hoe knows something about obama care from being from massachusetts. any other reasons? >> maybe because he's built businesses, corporations that hire tens of thousands of americans. but, you know, nancy passed the bill away from the fog of washington. pelosi doesn't take into account what's really going on around the country. she's going to go out and simply make the talking point. this is what the president wants her to do. this is what she's doing. so frankly just dismiss her. let's go back to what is happening just like the interview you just had. the interview you had was one on the numbers. when they talked about 5% of the population over 15 million people. if they are not served by obama care like promised, that's like 15 million people not served. >> let's go back to what romney said. was it too strong for him to say it's rotten, the rest of the three years of president obama? >> remains to be seen. i would say he's not been right about a lot of things. we'll leave it at that. the

virginia. >> the people will be able to judge whether they like it or not in the midterm election. >> the gop is gearing up. texas senator ted cruz spent the weekend hunting game and votes in iowa, home of the first presidential caucuses. >> we are seeing an administration that seems bent on violating every constitutional protection we have in the bill of rights. >> the sunday shows also featured republicans eyeing the white house and slamming obama care. >> symptomic of a liberal ideology. >> both sides are playing referendum across the country and planning presidential and congressional campaigns for the next three years. virginia's going to vote in the next seven days. >> thank you. republican candidate ken cuccinelli will be here. our guest will sit in with the panel and talk policy and ask him where the race stands and take questions from you. what will you ask the candidate? we use a question or two from you tonight. let me know on twitter. you can follow me at bret baier. up next, president obama apparently not in the loop as we mentioned. it's another big policy mess. we e
. why should she be elected and senator mike enzi be defeated in the primary? >> well, there are several reasons. first of all, obviously i'm a big supporter of my daughter's. i really believe the republican party is in trouble. we've lost the last two presidential elections, and we badly need, i think, to bring along a new generation of talent, leaders, recruit new folks into the party. i think liz does exactly that. mom with five kids, university of chicago, two tours in the state department, bright, capable, talented and so she's offered herself as a candidate in wyoming. mike's not a bad guy. he's had three terms in the u.s. senate. in the hundred year history since we have been electing senators directly in this country, there's only been one time when the wyoming senator had more than three terms. it's always sort of been the norm, the limit. mike told a lot of people he wasn't going to run, but then he decided he was going to run. but there's going to be a primary. nothing wrong with that. i had to run in a primary when i ran the first time around. >> that's when you had the first
arrived for the trial and immediately invoked his status as egypt's first freely elected president. and that is about as far as things got there. the trial was postponed until early next year. live in cairo, ian, it sounds like it barely got going before it was postponed. what happened inside there? >> that's right, brooke. initially, we thought it was going to be a quick, noneventful procedural trial, but really was anything but. morsi came strolling in, wearing a suit, not the typical white jumper that most defendants are seen wearing when asked who he was, he said he was the president of the republic, and that he did not recognize the legitimacy of the court. his other co-defendants, the seven others, also broke out into chants, saying that they do not recognize the legitimacy of the court twice. the judge had to adjourn the court, calm things down. probably the most bizarre was two local egyptian journalists got in a fight with a lawyer. the journalists chanted -- angry at him. and that stopped proceedings for a while as well. now, they finally were able to get through it. ther
